  • Long-term cardiovascular changes following creation of arteriovenous fistula in patients with end stage renal disease. [Journal Article]
  • EHEur Heart J 2017 Mar 06
  • Reddy YN, Obokata M, … Borlaug BA
  • CONCLUSIONS: In long-term follow-up, RV remodelling and dysfunction develop following AVF/AVG creation and dialysis initiation, despite improved control of LV pressure load through dialysis. Deleterious effects on right heart structure and function are coupled with development of incident HF and increased risk of death. Further study is required to identify patients at greatest risk for detrimental AVF/AVG changes who may benefit from alternate forms of dialysis or potentially ligation of existing AVF.
  • Assessment of apoptosis in the native vein used for hemodialysis access. [Journal Article]
  • CMCroat Med J 2016 Dec 31; 57(6):540-547
  • Leci-Tahiri L, Krušlin B, … Lovričević I
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study indicates a possible role of venipuncture in apoptosis development and a possible role of apoptosis in fistula failure, but we do not have sufficient evidence to conclude that it represents its main cause.
